The New Collage Movement on the Streets

A modern American master Joseph Cornell (1903-1972) is considered one of the pioneers of collage, or the art form also known as assemblage. Most of his work consist of shadow boxes with assembled objects found on the streets of New York City or bric-a-brac shops. On the streets of New York today you can see his influence and that of a number of modern and contemporary artists who pioneered the practice of gathering and assembling.

Collage as a visual trope is a static snapshot of the images and influences that fly by our eyes daily. Dig a little deeper and it can be DNA, diary, diatribe – depending on the arranger. Easily dismissed by early 20th century art critics as no more than crafting magic, itself a classist dismissal of creativity, collage steadily gained greater appreciation, fans, and collectors with thoughtful composition and attention to balance. One element plays against the next, or with it, creating a new whole. In fact one could argue that the entire Street Art scene itself is a collage made by a variety of participants, but these are images of the more formal sort and singular focus.

Today collage is all over the streets, another new addition that distinguishes the current generation from the recent past. Often smaller in scale and overlooked in general, a collage can captivate attention when a passerby discovers it and cause one to consider it in context. Because of the one-off nature of works in this category, it is not likely replicated, so catch it while you can.

Faile. Along with their recent announcement of their partnership with the New York City Ballet Arts Series came a marketing campaign blitz that saw the New York City transit system and streets blanketed with the promotional posters. So once again Street Artists see their work in place it was previously, but because a fee has been paid, this time it is legal.

Says Faile: “It’s pretty crazy to see that work on the subways and streets and not to have been the ones to put it up there. Quite ironic” (photo © Jaime Rojo)

Images of the Week 12.16.12

Ahhhhhhhhh, we are all going to Hell in a hand basket! That’s what your music teacher Mrs. Penny Whistle said as she picked that last little caramel-colored shard of peanut brittle out of the box at her desk and crunched loudly as you played your Top 40 musical contribution for the whole 6th grade class to listen to on your mini-speakers. And in fact, she may have been correct. Look at what has happened since then! Also, the Mayans tell us we have about 5 fricken cold December days left till we all die a calamitous death, which is why I have done NO Christmas shopping.

Friday on Bushwick Avenue in Brooklyn you may have also learned about where YOU are likely to go after the big apocalypse and Jaime Rojo is pleased to share the answer photographically here (see the last picture).

But before we get to your final resting place, here is our weekly interview with the street, which is very lively this week! We’re featuring 4 Burners Crew, Bast, Dasic, EKG, Icy & Sot, Lädy, HUSH, MA, Mr. Toll, Nether, Okuda, Olek, Rubin, Square, Start, and Tripel.

What can we say? Have a great week.
